On November 16, 2007 at 8pm, YOUR DIL will host its third Annual Gala in New York City at the Broad Street Ballroom ( www.broadstreetballroom.com ). This Venetian masquerade ball will be our biggest event of the year. We have been working on this event for months and are looking forward to presenting you with an unforgettable evening. Our Honoree will be Mohammad Naqvi, the producer of the documentary "Shame". Please note that the dress code will be formal, with masks. Tickets and masks will be available for sale on the YOUR DIL website shortly ( www.yourdil.org). All proceeds will go towards building a new model school in Mansehra, NWFP, Pakistan - the area most affected by the 2005 earthquake.
